Toast will work with your Mac but you have some serious shortcomings with RAM and available hard drive space that are greatly compromising the Mac's performance. Go to Otherworld Computing (macsales.com) and buy some RAM. Also, move a lot of stuff to an external hard drive to free up some space. The Mac uses available hard drive space as virtual RAM and your low amount of built-in RAM makes that even more essential.

 

I'm guessing you're confused about Toast's specifications for use of its Turboboost feature. That's just a speed boost for certain functions. Toast works fine with other Macs. I don't have one that can use Turboboost, either.

Thanks tsantee! Since this machine was purchased in December 2006, the next thing I will do is buy a new one rather than add 2 more GB's of RAM. (I could only use 3 GB of the 4 anyway.) I will clear out some hard drive junk. I have heard that when burning a video some folks were having problems with the 11.0.6 app stalling at 99% not allowing them to finish. I thought maybe the graphics card was the issue.

 

Anyway, I will give it a try.

Why can't You use more than 3gb? I have similar macbook (radeon x1900) with 4gb, and by the way it works perfect with toast.

Glad to hear it works!

 

BTW, the specifications for our machine say that you can install 4GB but only 3 GB will be addressed. So, in fact 3GB is the maximum useable memory.
